ENGEES engineering training can be followed under the status of civil servant student (more precisely, Agricultural and Environmental Engineer student), subject to the opening of a position. Civil servant students follow the same training as students in the initial engineering training program (FI), and are awarded the same diploma, the "ENGEES engineering diploma".
Civil servant status is only available to candidates who have passed the competitive entrance exams for the CCINP and G2E grandes écoles, and who can choose this status during the "vœux" (choice) period.
For the start of the 2023 academic year, 20 positions are available for the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Territorial Cohesion (8 BCPST places, 4 MP places, 4 PC places, 4 PSI places).
he training is identical to that for students, and civil servant students can take the same in-depth courses at ENGEES from the second year. Engineering students can also choose to complete their 3rd year at a partner institution and take a double-diploma, provided this does not require an additional year of study (this excludes most double-diploma engineering/engineering programs).
Civil servant students pay no tuition fees, and are salaried employees of the state during their training. Upon graduation, civil servant students are granted tenure and join the IAE corps (agricultural and environmental engineers).
The initial engineering training program (FI)
(1st year internships are modified for civil servant students: they take a one-week work placement in December and a 4-week job discovery placement in July).
